    I have a 2005 Passat with the 2.8 V6, only has about 80,000 miles on it. At about 75,000 miles, I did a timing belt job on it using a kit from Blauparts. This included valve cover gaskets, timing chain tensioner gaskets, etc. I followed the instructions precisely and only used RTV in the...

    We have been enjoying this car for a couple of months now and I'm trying to look into fixing some of the issues that we've come up with. Looking forward to learning more!

    Hopefully I get to bring back my car this way again and much more, I had to stop the modding because of school. Now I'm back and I'll be modding it little by little.

    I was looking through a box of items from when we bought our 2001.5 Passat new from the dealer. I found a few interesting things like the original window sticker, the SKC key tag, a VW pen, a VW keychain, the original purchase docs, and a few delivery pictures from the dealer. What was most...

    I've been hooding crazy from day to night & I swear not sleeping at night for weeks now over my choice to totaling restore/modify my 00' Passat or 99' Maxima(bought it new). Love them both & if it was just to make faster it would of been the Maxima ( easy to drop in 3.5 w/ cams & turbo). But it...

    Hi all, New to this Forum. Just got a 2002 Passat V6 GLX 4motion a week ago. After a tropical storm had to go over a small flood which did quick without any problems until after a few miles later the 5th gear started disengaging suddenly and engaging quickly, since then this happens from time to...

  11. Wax On, Wax Off
    Hey all. With spring here (at least in theory - here in NYC, we were teased last weekend with 70 degree weather, but this weekend back down into the 30's), I'm planning on fancying up my car for all of the park and beach trips. The thing is when I bought my car (used) three years ago, I took...

    Well, was driving, and noticed the "battery" light on the dash. Noticed on my volt gauge that the voltage was low when the car was running. Went home and looked at the vag-com, was getting 11.7V w/o car running, 11.4-11.6V with the car running. So, is my alternator out, or could it be...

    Ok everyone, here's the latest noise my car is making. Around three days ago when I started the car after it sat for the night I got this really loud whining sound that seemed to get louder after it started. It sounded like a turbine ginning up and after around 30 seconds or so, it stopped only...

    2003 Passat GLX 4Motion Wagon April 2009 bought for $9000 (78k miles) from a small dealer who wasn't quick to sell the car because he liked riding it around himself. I called up the original owner and they were an older couple who sold it because they wanted something higher up. They said it...

    Last week was a cold morning, went outside and my car wouldn't start. Figured it was a bad battery, bought a new one that night, and was good to go. When I went to start the car that time, the locks cycled a few times, engine clicked a few times, and nothing... lights and AC all worked...
